i am. i have found some i like and they come in different size options... i'm not clear on what the general rule is for pendant light diameter... the cans are 24" apart if that helps.

you need to have dimensions.... the general rule, is that it really depends on the fixture style and shape. with these being clear, 6-8 inches could work they are flexible a bit either way.

Would 10 be way too huge?

The island consists of three 24" cabinets (total 72") with the cans centered over each cabinet section).

Flair is on target with the size. Generally speaking you want 12-16 between pendants. With your island size (and going at the lower end of the scale at 12" per your can dimensions) Give's you 24" to spread among three pendants (8" each) That being said, because the "visual weight" of your pendants are light - IMHO 10" will not be a big issue.
Waterspheres Pendant
For instance, the watersphere pendants are 10" but are lighter visually than the say the moorlands at the same diameter.
